About Space Wars
The whole look and feel of Space Wars has understandably been themed around a cosmic play-ground. This classy production opens with a cut-scene where you introduced to the outer-space battle-field on which this game is set. Then it’s over to a dark, star-pricked night sky as your background, complete with asteroids and a planet-scape to really help set the scene. The reels, as you might expect, are full of little alien warriors, ready to help you on your way to bagging some fantastic wins.
Sound-wise Space Wars is a very good slot machine. You get an eerie 1960’s style b-movie musical score that comes complete with whirring, high pitched noises that make you feel like a UFOs about to land in your back-garden. This is accompanied by some awesome effects that really help immerse you deep into the playing experience, and create a wonderful, almost spooky atmosphere. Very few games out there have perfect audio, but we believe this is as close as you’re going to get.
What can you expect from the Space Wars base-game? Well for a start you get a truly massive grid featuring forty pay-lines of superb action, and this is coupled up with stacked wilds to help you get the wins in, which appear on reels two and four. Also, all other symbols in the game appear in stacks, which can both help you hit the big pay-outs when they connect, but can also be equally infuriating when they block one another on the reels.
Space Wars uses a very innovative special re-spin feature. Whenever you hit a win on the reels, the winning symbols are sucked into the large teleportation jar that sits beside the base-game grid. The reels then re-spin with the stored symbols blasted back onto them, giving you a huge chance of landing another big-paying combination featuring the same symbol type. This clever mechanism not only gives you a chance of hitting more cash off every spin, but also ramps up the probability that you might hit that one big-time pay-out.
So what about the bonus round? Well, that’s the one place that Space Wars does fall down. It doesn’t actually have one. This is one of the only slots we’ve ever featured on the site that lacks any kind of feature, but there’s actually a very good reason for this. There’s so much win in that re-spin mechanism that you don’t actually need any kind of second screen game or free spin affair to make the big money here. This makes this title one of the truest slot machines that you can play online.
